Rated 3 out of 5 by Gammbit This product is well made but I wish they included the audio cable without the built-in mic.
My beats sound good and everything. Light, comfortable and durable enough. However, I barely used mine, to preserve its usability and to my surprise, it hasn't been used alot and the audio cable already has a problem. The mic always triggers off random voice prompts on my iPod without even pressing the buttons. I am very disappointed that these audio cables aren't that durable as the headphones themselves. My friend who told me about Beats, also has the same problem. Now we are off to finding replacement audio cables without the built in mic, as these wont cause any unneccessary voices prompts. The Beats headphones work flawlessly with the audio cables with no built in mics, so I definately know its the cable and not the headset itself.
PLEASE INCLUDE AN AUDIO CABLE WITHOUT A BUILT IN MIC FOR THE NEXT GENERATION OF BEATS SOLO HD HEADPHONES.

Rated 1 out of 5 by mesmanc Poor Quality Headphones
I've had two sets of the solo HD headphones. The left speaker went out on both sets. Even though I prefer to have the audio cord that works with my iPhone, I switched it out in hopes that it was just the cord and not the internal components. This wasn't the case...either time. The sound of these headphones is amazing, but if I am paying $200 a set, it's just not worth it to have them fall apart after just a couple of months. The returning process was a hassle the first time, so I am not even going to bother this time. Moving on to another brand.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Steven14 An Okay Buy, Not recommended
I recently bought these Beats by Dre Solo HD headphones, and I'm not quite pleased with them at all. They feel and look quite flimsy and breakable, not durable at all. Also, once you turn up the volume to about halfway the headphones begin to leak so that anyone within a foot radius can hear, and eventually are as loud as some speakers. The sound is good though, Overall, I believe the cons outweigh the pro's and I would not recommend buying this product to anyone.

Rated 4 out of 5 by ksmith Great sound and with care overall amazing
I've had my beats sense last year (2012) and I got them for Christmas and I was so happy! I wore them around the hour for the next few weeks. But I didn't want to be one of those high school kids who brought them to school just to wear them around their necks and probably end up getting them stolen. I kept them at home and brought them along anytime I went on trips. As far as comfort goes they are amazing...as long as they are only on for like 2 hours. After that they start to get a little ear sore. And as far as durability goes I've only noticed a something wrong with the head strap, and that is that its already starting to fall off. Which seems to be the problem with some of the other Solo HD's. But if you keep great care of these headphones like you should because they are $200 then you will be very happy with them, like I have been for the past year.

Rated 4 out of 5 by MoneyNDaBanks Not disappointed
After my son had his beats for 9 weeks the wires start coming out of them. I quickly contacted customer service regarding the matter. They told me that they only color they had available was white, which he did not want. I began to request for a supervisor because he should either be able to get the color that he had or a color of choice. Suddenly there was more to choose from. I returned the beats with receipt of purchase and other info needed. Soon as they received the defected beats back they returned them quickly. They stated it would take a few weeks but if I could remember correctly they arrived the same week. I also must say the agent I spoke with did give great customer service.

Rated 5 out of 5 by RaffMMA2722 TAKE CARE OF THEM! Love em
All you have to do is take care of your headphones. That's all, people that throw them around, step on them, let people borrow them, slam them, bring them in the shower, are all the people that most likely gave these bad reviews. I love my headphones. Lightweight sound is awesome, they fit comfortably. So if your planning on buying some i would. When your not using them fold them up and put them in the case. Not that hard. I'll never go back to any other headphones.

Rated 2 out of 5 by jayjay great sound quality...but that's about it.
These headphones have terrific sound quality, but the overall durability and comfort? Not so terrific. The headband cushion has fallen off completely, and although I've put it back on, the adhesive is so weak it probably won't stay put. So I'll most likely have to rig it with duct tape or super glue, which shouldn't need to be done if I'm paying 200 dollars for these headphones. After about an hour the headphones get uncomfortable and hurt my ears, which isn't good because i travel for 5-6 hours at a time, and i have to take my beats off way too often to make my ears stop hurting. Not to mention the sound goes out often, so I have to fiddle with the jack/cord and put it in the right spot so it comes back. In my opinion, I should not be paying so much money to have so many problems with these headphones. I'm paying not only for quality, but comfort and durability as well, and I'm only really satisfied with the quality.
I've had my beats for less than a year and I'm already experiencing problems. I love the sound quality very much, and I'd recommend this product to a friend, if they only cared about sound quality and didn't care how bad their ears would hurt or how beat up their beats would really get after only 8 months. I cannot recommend these headphones to anyone if problems like these aren't fixed. I will, however, let everyone know how unsatisfactory my beats purchase was.
